Today we began discussing the holiday of Tu Bishvat! Why do we celebrate it? What is so beautiful about trees and planting? Why is it so important for us to plant trees on our earth? The Prachim classroom began decorating their own trees on paper, as we discuss elements of trees such as branches, bark, roots, leaves, and how all of their parts work together. These parts work together to even help humans in many ways, like breathing! As we begin this unit on Tu Bishvat, we are taking a closer look at the greenery that surrounds us.
